TV show description:
This sitcom revolves around Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel), a happy free-spirited girl who has a unique way of seeing the world. She comes home early one day to surprise her boyfriend and is crushed when she finds him sleeping with another woman.
Jess temporarily moves in with her best friend from childhood, a no-nonsense model named Cece Meyers (Hannah Simone), but needs to find her own place. A posting on Craigslist leads Jess to find a great loft apartment — that she shares with three young single guys who she never met before.
Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) was recently dumped by his girlfriend and is still nursing his bruised ego. When things get to be too much, he hides under his hoodie. He’s the most grounded of the group but also the most jaded. He works as a bartender, having previously dropped out of law school.
Schmidt (Max Greenfield) is a hustling young professional who has self-esteem issues about his manhood. This likely stems from the fact that he’s the only guy in an otherwise all-woman office. He takes great pride in his abs and sometimes inappropriately takes off his shirt to show them off. Not surprisingly, he’s the one who has to contribute the most often to the apartment’s “Douchebag Jar.”
When Jess moves in, the third guy is Coach (Damon Wayans Jr.), a personal trainer with an anger problem. He’s just subletting his spot from Winston Bishop (Lamorne Morris), an intensely competitive former athlete. He doesn’t know what to do next but, whatever Winston does, he wants to win it.
The guys and girls find that they need each other more than they thought they would, form a unique family unit, and end up helping each help other make their way in the world.
